In answer to the OP, no, I couldn't care less if the same thing gets asked or repeated over and over again. If I don't want to read something, I don't. Who is holding a gun to your head
forcing you to read everything whether you want to or not? Only the old regulars care about this issue. Encourage the newbies. Tell everyone to post whatever they want. Each thread turns out differently. Constantly telling people to use the search engine
just discourages and chases away new participants.
